School Neuropsychological Assessments

A School Neuropsychological Assessment provides a comprehensive picture of a child's cognitive profile.  Everyone has a unique pattern of strengths and weaknesses that is as individual as his or her fingerprint.  This type of evaluation explores and explains that profile so parents and educators can better understand how a child learns and processes information, learns new skills and information, and utilizes their natural abilities.  Armed with this information, parents and teachers can make the best educational decisions for kids.

The primary goal of a School Neuropsychological Assessment is to:

  • provide the most comprehensive and accurate picture of your child's cognitive and learning profile

  • describe how your child's brain processes new and novel information

  • describe your child's cognitive strengths and weaknesses in detail

Testing time:   8 to 12 hours (face-to-face testing time, scheduled in multiple sessions)

Cost:   $2,800 to $3,400 (depending on the extent of testing necessary in each individual area)
